OCI Associates, Inc. provided engineering services for the mechanical, electrical, technology, plumbing, fire protection and fire alarm systems for Orange County’s new middle school campus located in Lake Nona, FL. Innovation Park Middle School is a new prototype design consisting of five buildings over 26-acres and totals 174,686 square feet. The campus is comprised of a three-story classroom building that serves 1,348 students; a two-story administrative building, a gymnasium building, a multipurpose/kitchen building and a field house. Athletic fields include a softball field, three tennis courts, three basketball courts, and a full-size running track.
A unique feature of the modern campus design is the skywalk connecting the two-story administration building and three-story classroom building. The bridge overlooks the courtyard allowing for increased supervision during class changes and extracurricular activities.
